In India, the first notification regulating the drone industry came as a public notice issued by India’s Civil Aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on 7 October 2014. The notification laid down the need for potential operators to take “approval from the Air Navigation Service provider ie the Airport Authority of India, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Home Affairs, and other security agencies, besides the DGCA.”
The list of approvals and prerequisites were conditions masquerading as a shadow ban, as it was almost impossible to get clearances from each body. The only positive part in the notification was the future promise by Civil Aviation Ministry that, “DGCA is in the process of formulating the regulations and globally harmonise those for regulatory certification and operation for use of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) in the Indian civil airspace.”
